Criminal Attack, I am tired of the use of the word terrorist.

dfunkie1 04-15-2013 06:53 PM

wtf is a criminal attack? whether you like it or not, it's an act of terror.

this is fucked up. why the hell would someone try to send a message by setting off explosion on innocent marathon runners.

Thug 04-15-2013 07:01 PM

jeez. the video is so clear. the musical sound that follows the first bomb is mad eerie.

honestly the amount of ppl lost in both the twin tower attacks and the war on terrorism has just been ridiculous. all this fighting back and forth is just creating hate towards one another and until this hate goes away, i dont think it will be the last time we hear about another terror attack.

just makes me sick that humanity has sunk this low

Shadowfax 04-15-2013 07:18 PM

Another sad day for humanity :(

Boston ---> tax day ---> taxation without representation (Boston tea party) ---> tea party

Not until you start stripping political propaganda, religious propaganda, and most basic bullshit used in media to scare people will this shit stop. The nomenclature itself is perpetuated by both sides to create fear. I say criminal because at the most simple level, that's all this is, a crime. We have to disarm all parties involved in creating these situations, one way is to destroy the ability to get the desired affect. We stop calling things TERROR, than the terror begins to leave, and whats left i the crime, the sadness and then the justice.

Thats why I say that. I'm not trying to argue or fight, I know what ya mean, but thats how I feel.

you shut it you.

As for my post, there are guys here that know more than me about this stuff, likely Funkie himself, I respect whats he's saying, I just hope what I'm saying make a bit of sense too.

Toby 04-15-2013 09:30 PM

Looked like a backpack bomb. Feel bad for those that got hurt.

Toby 04-15-2013 10:03 PM

they postponed today's Celtics game

dfunkie1 04-15-2013 10:20 PM

SJ - totally get what you're saying. i was watching CNN when i came how to catch some coverage, and they were trying their hardest to define it as a terrorist attack, and making it their best effort to call it the twin bombings. it's pathetic how everything gets associated with terrorism, but the worse of it is what they associate terrorists with.

criminal attack just sounds like someone is getting robbed or hit by a thief. it's a little larger than that.

Superjudge 04-15-2013 11:09 PM

ya I know, I'm sure there is a better way to say it.
